French Market Sandwiches: Make Ahead and Freeze!

Mr. Devilish Dish likes to come home for lunch.  His office is literally a mile away.  It doesn't make good sense for him to go out and eat fast food.  A waste of money and calories.  He can run right up the road and have a homemade lunch.  And by homemade I mean leftovers.  Well sometimes I fix him something for lunch, but a while back I decided to prepare several things ahead that freeze well, and re-heat well.  These sandwiches are perfect for making ahead and freezing.  They're like a hot ham and cheese sandwich with a really tasty spread.  If I'm not here, he has a "homemade tv dinner" of sorts for lunch.  That way, his lunch hour does not interfere with my pool time.  And now that fall is here, and the hectic entertaining and holiday season is quickly approaching, it's great to have something delicious in the freezer, that you can pull out and serve guests on a moment's notice!
Hot Ham and Swiss, the perfect lunch!
